The Hammer is a new tool introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Unlike other tools, which come in gold, silver and regular, the hammer only comes in one style. It is colored red, with a yellow handle.
In New Leaf
The hammer is used by the player on Tortimer Island to play the game Hammer Time. The player is given a hammer and must chase a Cornimer remote control car and hit it as many times as possible to earn medals in a certain amount of time. The more times the toy is hit, the more medals the player wins.
- It is likely based off a pico hammer, a popular toy for children in Japan.
